South Yorkshire Police and Crime Commissioner Shaun Wright has refused to resign, despite his force being savagely criticised in a report on widespread child abuse in Rotherham.

And Mr Wright went on to say the scale of the problem in Rotherham, in which at least 1,400 children in the town were sexually exploited by criminal gangs between 1997 and 2013, ‘came as a surprise’.

The report blamed Rotherham Council and South Yorkshire Police for doing nothing when they knew about the problem.
